Every Republican member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee wrote to the Biden administration Tuesday, demanding information on how it plans to address the energy crisis.

"We believe the Environmental Protection Agency should also account for its plans and actions to help us assess factors behind both the intermediate and the long-term risks to electric reliability across the nation," the Republicans wrote to Regan in the letter first obtained by Fox News Digital.

"This ‘EGU strategy’ includes many major new regulations now under development or proposed … all of which directly affect power plants that are essential to reliable electric operations."
